    Some stories below to get acquainted with some recent work.:)


    Our medical teams often witness violence, atrocities, and neglect in the course of their work, much of which occurs in places that rarely receive international attention. The stories below represent our effort to bear witness to these crises on behalf of our patients.

    The wife of one of my close friends is part of the team that goes to Haiti every year. It's a scary endeavor, but one that is worthwhile for those with the medical talents who choose to share their gift with others.
